The new Tormek Diamond Wheels offer an exceptional durability plus the ability to sharpen on the side as well as the periphery.

The new diamond wheels come in three different grades; Coarse, Fine and Extra Fine. The quality of the diamond surface provides a high and constant sharpening ability and a grinding wheel that always remains the full size in diameter. Users who frequently sharpen the same tool will benefit greatly from this feature as it simplifies both setting and sharpening.

Diamond is the world's hardest material and almost twice as hard as cubic boron nitride (CBN), which is another commonly used abrasive. The diamond's extreme hardness and durability make it the optimal material for sharpening.

Another great aspect of the diamond wheels is that the wheels have a diamond layer on the side, perfect for the sharpening of small carving tools such as carving gouges and V-tools plus plane irons, wood chisels and knives. The result is a bevel edge with a completely flat surface, instead of a hollow grind.

When sharpening on the side of the Diamond Wheels using the new Multi Base MB-100, the user always has support and control using the Tormek jigs. To sharpen either with or without water is another detail which has been made possible with the new diamond wheels. However, Tormek always recommends sharpening with water as it prolongs the life of the wheel and gives a better result.

The Diamond Wheels are complementary to our water cooled sharpening system and will not replace the Tormek Original Grindstone. Each of the Tormek Diamond Wheels is suitable for all types of material, incl. steel, ceramic and carbide.
